Brand new Giant Contact 30.9mm x 360mm seatpost taken immediately off new bicycle after purchase. Make me an offer!! Weighs 280g NOTES: - Label says "7mm rails only". Most saddles have 7mm diameter saddle rails - Minor cosmetic damage on underside of seatpost (see pics) with very small paint chips/rub. Unsure what caused these.

These are brand new take-offs from a new 2014 model year bicycle. Used once for parking lot demo ride at local bicycle shop and removed immediately afterwards since I prefer another brand of brakes. Feel free to make me an offer!! Price includes: - Front post-mount adapter to convert from 160mm to 180mm rotor. - Bolts to attach front and rear brakes to postmount. - 180mm and 160mm 6-bolt Icetech rotors with rotor bolts. - Front and rear brakes are both POSTMOUNT, you will need an IS (International Standard) adapter if your fork or rear frame does not accept postmount Front hose length: ~28" (71 cm) Rear hose length: ~56" (142 cm) NOTES: (1) I-Spec mounts can be removed (see pic with red arrow) so they fit most shifters. Not sure regarding other models. Demonstrated in pics above by mounting with old XT shifter. See pics above. (2) For I-Spec use, these will not fit older I-Spec shifters such as 2013. These were originally attached to SL-M780-B I-Spec shift levers. See Post #5 regarding I-Spec compatibility between years ( http://forums.mtbr.com/shimano/xt-brakes-i-spec-shifters-838087.html) Some Shimano shifters can be converted to I-Spec by changing the shifter covers. http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/ca/en/shimano-xt-m780-i-spec-direct-attach-cover/rp-prod67257

First Look: Three Prototypes From Marin Cycles
Why did Marin choose to use a single pivot rear end for the Mount Vision, but Quad Link (dual link variant) for the Attack Trail??? On their older models they used Quad Link on both these two models. Personally I liked the aesthetics of the old Quad Link 2 over the new Quad Link 3, it also had the advantage of an elevated chainstay so there was no chainstay chain slap.

Analysis: Enduro World Series Rules and Regulations
"Only one frame, one front and rear suspension unit (fork/rear shock) and one pair of wheels can be used by a competitor during a race. " Riders should be allowed to strap an extra fork or wheelset to their backpack as along as they are willing to carry the extra weight :-P

To the Point: Heat Treating Aluminum Frames
Article from Bicycling Magazine indicating carbon can be repaired. "A properly restored frame will also be just as strong as its unbroken original. One composite engineer at a major bike brand who spoke on the condition of anonymity said he has performed pedal and head-tube fatigue tests on repaired carbon frames and found they passed his company's internal standards. It's even possible a cracked frame can come back stronger if it was damaged in an underengineered area or failed due to a manufacturing defect." http://www.bicycling.com/maintenance/repair-maintenance/resurrection-calfees-carbon-frame-repair
